Dear Bianca's Kids
Luke is 13 years old. He was Diagnosed in 2003 with two diseases. He has Neurofibromatosis Type 1. It is a condition that causes random tumors to grow throughout the body. The tumors can be cancerous. He had a brain biopsy in October of 2003 that confirmed a brain tumor separate from the NF1. It is called Gliomatosis Cerebri. It is a highly invasive, inoperable type of tumor that usually takes the person's life within two months to two years of diagnosis. It will never go away, and the prediction is that it will eventually take Luke's life. For now, his parents count their blessings daily. Luke battles other issues that cause a major artery to his brain to narrow, putting him at risk for stroke. This beautiful little boy has been stripped of so much.
One thing Luke used to enjoy was bike riding with his parents. Given his circumstances & the fact that a traditional bike will not work anymore, he needs a special item. My wish for Luke is a 2015 Igo Venture by Wehoo. This gift for Luke would provide him the opportunity to enjoy bike riding again and to feel the wind in his beautiful face again.
Kenny, we are thrilled to grant this wish. Luke's 2015 Venture is on its way!
